An Update on COVID-19

To our valued Walk Ahead Community:

During this challenging and unprecedented time, we want you to know how much the Brain Tumor Community means to us.  We are all in this together as we navigate the uncertainty, frustration, and unknowns of the COVID-19 virus. 

We look forward to seeing you on October 18, 2020 if we can physically and safely gather together.    

In the coming weeks and months, we will adapt our Walk Ahead for a Brain Tumor Cure to keep our walkers and runners safe. 

Our website is open for both virtual and physical registration. Please consider joining us once again.  We will continue to communicate with you on our website with any changes or updates, but also via email and social media.

The month of May is recognized as Brain Tumor Awareness Month. To continue to build awareness, raise funds, and inspire hope for the brain tumor community, Walk Ahead invites you to share why you walkWear an old Walk Ahead T-shirt and take a moment to send us a picture, a note, make a short video, or create something that demonstrates your personal experience and why you participate (these can be sent to ucgnistaff@ucmail.uc.edu).   We will share these on our Walk Ahead Facebook page.  

During this time, we want to lift one another up, and show that whether we can be together physically, or only virtually, the power of this community to come together and create change is still possible. 

Wishing you health, happiness and safety during this time,

The Walk Ahead Committee

The University of Cincinnati Brain Tumor Center, a regional destination, provides innovative and compassionate care for patients with brain tumors while striving to find cures and discover why these tumors occur.  The funds from our past events have helped us achieve new benchmarks as we have moved forward with various brain tumor research projects.  Each year, funds raised by this event help support at least two pilot research grants for our UC researchers who are determined to find a brain tumor cure.  Several of these projects have led to clinical trials, including one that could change the face of cancer treatment.
